    I want to get my mom an iPhone 4, we just switched to Verizon so she is using a confusing free phone as of right now, but Id like to get her an iPhone 4 from Craigslist. Now if I want to activate it onto the Verizon network will she have to get the data plan?

    Yes, data plan is mandatory from what I know.

    100% accurate. You have to have the data plan on all smartphones.

    It's the same way for AT&T. I still have my contract with them, and even though my 3GS is sold, it is still linked to my account so I can't remove the data plan until I activate a dummy phone on it. Unfortunately, that's just the way cell providers are nowadays.
